The 2005–06 season was Sport Lisboa e Benfica's 102nd season in existence and the club's 72nd consecutive season in the top flight of Portuguese football. It involved Benfica competing in the Primeira Liga, Taça de Portugal and the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. Benfica qualified for the Champions League by winning the previous Primeira Liga. Benfica also contested the Supertaça for the second time in a row.

Ronald Koeman replaced Giovanni Trapattoni which didn't renew his contract. Benfica started the season by winning the Supertaça for a fourth time and a first since 1990. In the Primeira Liga, Benfica ended twelve points behind the winners, and failed to retain his title, despite winning both games against them, but secured a spot in the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

In the Taça de Portugal it failed to reach the final, as in the two previous season's, being knock-out at home by Vitória Guimarães.

Perhaps the season's biggest accomplishment was reaching the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, before losing 2–0 on aggregate against Barcelona. In the group stage, Benfica secured a second place, throwing Manchester United out of the competition and defeating title holders Liverpool in the first knock-out stage by a clear 3–0.

At the end of the season, Ronald Koeman was sacked and replaced with Fernando Santos. The poor league results heavily influenced this decision.
